Hi, I'm David!

Hi, my name is Dave Herrick. My wife Sandy and I live north of Boston and we have owned this unit since 2004. We have been coming to Sanibel for over 30 years. We owned a condo in the 80s which we unfortunately sold in 1992. Ever since then, we have been hoping to be able to someday re-establish an ownership position on the Island. Our desire is to establish a high quality, well maintained unit to which our guests will want to return to, year after year.

During the 80s we made Sanibel our annual vacation, usually over the Holidays to coincide with school vacations for our three boys. Sometimes we had Christmas trees and boats in tow. Sometimes it was grandparents joining us to escape the Boston cold. On every occasion, it was a trip we all looked forward to with excitement and anticipation. My kids learned to swim on Sanibel. This is where they saw their first alligator in the wild. We took daily bike rides on the miles of bike paths and explored the wildlife at the numerous sanctuaries. Sometimes we just walked the beach at low tide and talked about whatever interesting shells or other sealife we found. Overall, Sanibel became a very special place in our lives. It became a place we all enjoyed together; a difficult concept to achieve in a diverse and growing family. During the nineties, we missed our southern sojourns, but with the kids involved in school activities and moving on to college, it became increasingly difficult to schedule family trips. Interestingly, with the kids now through school and with kids of their own, they have rekindled their own memories and attraction to the Island.

We have enjoyed this new phase in our lives and look forward to continuing to share our Sanibel home with our family and with other new and returning visitors.

Dave and Sandy Herrick

Booked late and had to pick up a cancellation, but was great. Convenient location to many things. Pre rented bikes and they were waiting at the place, very handy. Week after xmas and apparently easter busiest weeks, you will want to avoid driving on periwinkle as much as possible. More relaxing to take time and bike places, even scheduled tram tour and national refuge but biked there for it, on way back stopped and ate at island cow then grabbed some groceries for condo. Condo clean and had what we needed. Beach was awesome, if want to shell, check low tides, plan then. We ate light breakfast at condo, beached then biked to lighthouse cafe for lunch/breakfast (some shopping), back to condo and not the pool for late aft. Little rest and beach comb evening low tide. Relaxing week but got some exercise with the bikes. Like bloody marys , try the one at lighthouse cafe.
